The new Maniac remake trailer stalks and slashes its way online

May. 22, 2013by: Eric Walkuski

IFC has revealed a new look at Franck Khalfoun's MANIAC remake, which is finally coming to North American shores next month. Find the new trailer, which sports the movie's very cool score, below.

Just when the streets seemed safe, a serial killer with a fetish for scalps is back and on the hunt. Frank (Elijah Wood) is the withdrawn owner of a mannequin store, but his life changes when young artist Anna (Nora Arnezeder) appears asking for his help with her new exhibition. As their friendship develops and Frank's obsession escalates, it becomes clear that she has unleashed a long-repressed compulsion to stalk and kill.

A 21st century Jack the Ripper set in present day L.A., Franck Khalfoun's MANIAC, produced by Alexandre Aja (THE HILLS HAVE EYES, HAUTE TENSION), and composed by Rob of the band "Phoenix", is a re-boot of the William Lustig cult film considered by many to be the most suspensseful slasher movie ever made - an intimate, visually daring, psychologically complex and projoundly horrific trip into the downward spiralling nightmare of a killer and his victims.

IFC releases MANIAC in limited release and on VOD June 21st.

Stupid!

I watched this flick. When you are giving it a chance, just remember... there IS a reason why it did not get a wide theatrical release! It started off pretty interesting but as it goes on we just started thinking, "what's the point in this film?" Then it started REALLY dragging on. When it finally ended, I was so happy to turn it on the evening news because that was much more exciting.
